NINETY-EIGHT SERIES — The 1950 Oldsmobile 98 repeated its 1948 precedent of previewing some of next year's styling cues for the 88. The 98 was restyled after only two years. It was the first slab-sided Oldsmobile and the first sedan with wraparound rear windows. The 98 four-door fastback curiously returned after its absence from the line in 1949. Standard equipment included all items from the Eighty-Eight plus foam rubber seat cushions, chrome interior trim, lined luggage compartment and counter-balanced trunk lid. Deluxe Ninety-Eight equipment included rear seat center armrest, Deluxe electric clock, Deluxe steering wheel and horn button, special door trim and stainless steel wheel trim rings. Upholstery choices spanned nylon fabric, striped broadcloth or leather. Standard tire size was 7.60 × 15 inches.
